, that it could slow the economy in many areas. you have a lot of defense contractors worrying about what will happen at the turn of the new year. it is really anybody's guess. in terms of congress and whether they can come together after the election, but before every new person takes office, there is hope that congress and the white house can come to an agreement anteater postponed those spending cuts and tax increases, or come to -- and either postpone those spending cuts and tax increases, or come to some agreement. i think everyone thinks they may wait -- they may postpone and wait until the new session comes in and let them figure it out. but the so-called lame-duck session might see reasons to make a deal before the new people coming in. we will see. host: the next call comes from adam in phoenix, arizona. you say you are a student. what are you studying? caller: and studying economics. host: you have heard our conversation this morning. and what do you think? caller: i have. mr. rugaber said he was surprised with the unemployment dropping, but i was just reading about a month ago

. it is their responsibility to step up to their defense of their nation. [applause] we went for al qaeda. we went for some of the late in. we accomplished that goal. and now if it -- we went for osama bin laden. we accomplished that goal. and now it is time. congressman ryan made very clear that governor romney has a very different view. although he says that he thinks we should get out in 2014, although he says that that makes sense, he says we should never have announced that and i might add, had not, the afghans would never step up, which should never have announced that and, when asked to guarantee you will get out, he says it depends. no, i'm serious. you heard it. it depends on the situation on the ground. it depends. well it depends on nothing other than the date as far as we're concerned. it is time for the afghans to take care of their own responsibilities.

awaiting agents took defensive postures with ivy who was about 20-yards away. each believing the silhouette pointing the weapon was a bad guy they started firing. >> it is amazing that we have gone this many years without seeing more incidents like this. >> it is unclear who tripped the sensor that alerted the agents but it has been definitively established that no one other than the agents was at the scene when the gun fire ehe runed. >> you as a representative of these agents have concerns about is the fact there are so many new agents with a lack of experience out in the field. do you think that came into play here? >> i do. i absolutely think that came into play here. we have approximately 16,000 ground agents. of the agents the vast majority of them are five years and under. that is a very, very inexperienced workforce. >> jeffrey self, commander of customs and border protection joint field command friday night. >> if the investigation ultimately reaches that conclusion it changes none of the following facts. that agent ivy gave the ultimate sacrifice and died serving his country. that
this fight of the middle class comes at a time when the president is on the defensive and lost some ground in key areas. cnn orc poll tonight shows the president's lead is half a point outside the margin of error. last month he was leading with nine points. we told you last night about a pughel poll which shows romney leading obama. you can see also barely outside the margin of error. in that same poll, the president's 18-point lead among women disappeared. he's now running even with romney. so who is winning this vital war over middle class tax cuts? rah ham salon joins us and john avlon, senior political columnist at "newsweek" and "the daily beast." this debate over $5 trillion and what you're trying to do and on the backs of the middle class, this isn't just about a number and who is using a number specifically in what way. it goes to the heart of whether the president is going to win. >> in 2008, barack obama did something incredibly brilliant. he actually managed to outflank the republicans on taxes, which was their biggest, most potent issue for literally decades, by saying, hey, if
to refurbish a full abrams tank that even the defense department admits it doesn't need. all part of the fight over defense spending cuts that we have been talking about on this show rather obsessively for the past year. the $1.2 trillion in sequestration cuts take effect on january 2nd and about half of that sum is going to come from defense, making it a major election year issue. >> they're looming across virginia, cuts to national defense that threaten nearly a million small business jobs. tim kean supported the washington budget deal that got us here. a deal that destroy over 500,000 jobs in the defense industry. >> so if defense spending is such a big issue this year, why are we on the hook for those tanks? drew griffin from our special investigations unit is "outfront" with the story. >> reporter: it's a remarkable sight, parked in the california desert. more than 2,000 of them, row upon row of m-1 abrams tanks, built by general dynamics beginning in the 1980s. most of them are still ready to roll. so when the u.s. army's budget folks sat down to make some tough decisions about what to c
six of the four down showdown and the defense is leading the offense 3-1. representing the defense ryan kerrigan and the offense, brandon banks. >> should be another cakewalk for the defense. no doubt. >> i like it. we'll start with the first down question. the fastest answer plus you have to get it right wins. what is the capital of minnesota. >> minneapolis. >> no. st.paul. >> it is 1-0 defense. no pressure brandon. >> second down, the hubert h. humphrey metrodome, the vikings stadium used to be home to this other pro minnesota team. >> i said it first. >> that is a tie. >> would do we give it to. >> we'll do a tie. third down. this is not a nickname for minnesota. a land of 10,000 lakes. the bred and butter state. the north star state or d they're all names. >> d. >> bread and butter state. >> or all of the above. >> all of the above. >> the bread and butter state. >> i've heard the 10,000 lakes one. never the other ones. >> that was a true process of elimination. >> we're tied up 2-2. this mall in bloomington, minnesota -- >> mall of america. >> that ain't fair. you need to fi
, defense ening. here's a little of what you're so upset about. mitt romney said it today. >> in a place like syria for instance, we should through our partners in the region, work to identify dissidents within syria that are responsible people, try to bring them together, provide weaponing and funding and they can promote their agenda. >> provide funding and weapons for them so they can defend their agenda. >> i have two questions. number one, when we get involved with war or providing weapons, it needs to go before congress. the constitution says that is the prerogative of the legislatures. it's difficult to know who friend and foe are. over a decade now in afghanistan. we have trouble telling friend from foe. the people we're training, the afgh afghan soldiers, are turning their weapons on us. so, how are we supposed to know, who is our friend and foe? there's a significant christian population in syria. they fled from iraq after the war began. they felt it was safer to be under assad. what is that christian population saying? many news reports say they're unsure whether they want to
we do that. i oppose duplicative programs in defense costing the government $3 billion. i've opposed subsidies for agribusiness in the midwest that cost -- a cost this government over $8 billion a year that we don't need. i oppose giving away tax breaks to the oil industry and gas industry to outsource. i have been able to stand up and oppose things we don't need the we need a combination of both additional revenue from those who have done very well by this economy and them some serious -- that is some serious spending cuts. the senator we're seeking to replace, we should elect someone in the senate is going to be willing to compromise. i am. linda mcmahon is not. she is one of these candidates who signed this pledge to grover norquist and a lobbying group in washington. in her debates, she said she agreed with mayor romney that if given a chance to cut spending by $10 and increase revenue by $1 that she would not take it. we don't need to send someone to washington who is going to feed this obstructionism and draw these ridiculously hard lines and the stand -- hard line in the sand.
defense cuts that are coming up this january. these are things he has mentioned before, so this speech seemed to be an opportunity to make that argument a little more forcefully and and a place like virginia where it is a major battleground this year. the obama campaign is responding with a tv ad of their own in virginia, focusing on governor romney's foreign trip abroad, saying this was a reckless tripped and using a lot of footage from that. less than a month away from election day, we have a turn back toward foreign policy. it is the mirror image of what happened in 2008 when foreign policy had the election but once the financial collapse happened, suddenly everything turned to the economic issues and now you're seeing the other way around. host: thank you for joining us. appreciate it. >> this is where mr. romney will give his speech this morning. this is the virginia military institute in lexington, virginia. you are looking at the hall of valor. now romney is set to give his foreign policy speech at of the debate on foreign policy october 26 in florida. we will have live coverage
and not be imposing these devastating defense cuts. because what that does, when we show -- when we look weak, our enemies are much more willing to test us. and our allies are -- >> with all due respect, that's a bunch of mularkey. >> why is that so? >> nothing he said is accurate. >> be specific. >> i will be very specific. number one, this lecture on embassy security. the congressman here cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for. number one. so much for the embassy security peace. number two, governor romney, before he knew the facts, before he knew that our ambassador was killed, he was out making a political statement, which was panned by the media around the word. word. --world. and this talk about this weakness. i don't understand what my friend is talking about here. this is a president who has gone out and done everything he had said he was going to do. this is a guy who repaired our alliances to the rest of the world follows us again. this is a guy who brought the entire world, including russia and china to bring about the most devastating, most devastati
rights. and we should not be imposing these devastating defense cuts because what that does, when we equivocate on our values, when we show that we're fighting our own defense it makes us more weak. it projects weakness, and when we look weak our adversaries are much more willing to test us-- >> with all drew respect, that's a bunch of malarkey. >> and why is that so? >> not a single thing he said is rack rat. >> first of all,-- >> be specific. >> i will be very specific. number one, this lecture on embassy security. the congressman here cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for, number one. so much for the embassy security piece. number two, governor romney before he knew the facts before he even knew that our ambassador was killed, he was out naiking a political statement which was panned by the media around the world. and this talk about this-- this weakness. i don't understand what my friend's talking about here. we-- this is a president who has gone out and done everything he has said he was going to do. this is a guy who has repaired our allianc
an opportunity to present his side and he didn't present it adequately. so the defense is saying well, they're commenting on the fact he didn't testify at trial. that's a big no-no. i don't think they went on that because they voluntarily submitted him to this interview, so now, they're going to come in front of a jury and say well, it was wrong for the prosecutor to refer to an interview that we orchestrated? i don't think they're going to win on that. the second point is the case went so fast. >> it did. it was weeks, not months. >> he was only arrested last november of 2011. the case was over in less than nine months with huge numbers of alleged victims, so it went to trial -- >> the trial itself was very speedy. >> in looking at the law, you have a right to a speedy trial. i never heard of a right to a slow trial, have you? that's what they're saying. they pushed us into it and we couldn't prepare. that's the second biggest thing. >> any good litigator will tell his client, don't go in there tomorrow, don't apologize necessarily, i can't have you on the record admitting to this if you'r
in iraq and afghanistan as if it were defense spending. they did it as an emergency so this is just the base defense budget. this just shows how the base defense budget went up after 9/11, not including that emergency spending on iraq and afghanistan. now here's the amazing thing. watch this. so this is where our spending is now. that's what the blue line means. if we were to let our spending drop like we did after the end of the cold war, our spending would look like this. now you know the sequester that you've been hearing about with the draconian defense cuts, this is what our spending on the military would be like with the sequester. that's the purple line there. president obama's plan, what the pentagon and president obama have agreed should happen and what their plan is if president obama gets a second term is this line. military spending to have go like that. the third one there in the stack. essentially setting the spending levels we have got now as a new normal, even though he keeps spending going slightly up. people say there's no difference between the candidates. there's
to be very forceful in defense of his record and his presidency. and be clear where he wants to go. >> do you see them challenging each other on the floor during the town hall? >> it depends how the dynamic flows. my guess is both will be hesitant to do that. you're going to see them challenge them. it will be respectfully brutal. they are going to be tough 0 on each other but have to be aware you cannot be the same kind of aggressive in front of a room of people you can one-on-one. >> biden mentioned romney repeatedly by name during the debate. let's listen to part of that. >> governor romney was asked. governor rommy says. governor romney. >> nbc's first read says ryan said obama 14 times while biden said romney 26 times. based on those numbers, biden came out swinging certainly like governor romney did last week. what is your thought here? did congressman ryan miss an opportunity to come out and hit as romney did the week before? >> i think the take away number from that is the very few times that biden actually mentioned obama, simply because he doesn't have a record to run on. the way he
military in tunisia as a major issue. in libya there was no ministry of defense under gadhafi, and we don't even have a minister of defense in the newly-reformed, so curbing military power in the narrow sense of an army isn't the main issue in tunisia either, and i actually think -- excuse me, libya -- and i actually think that probably, you know, 95% of the 250,000 or so libyans walking around with weapons are trying to keep the peace, not make mischief. .. and the security forces and in defense of the regime that is where the action is, not in the military. you're the geopolitics guy. >> i thought the worst-case scenario for the algerian military is instability in northern mali. and you know what is going on in the eastern front with libya. i know that some troops had to be redeployed in the eastern front because of the, the traffic of armaments and drugs and other issues. this is the worst case so. >> i just want to take the opportunity to answer a question that hasn't been asked. but, this is something that i was thinking about. it's slightly related to your question but it's somethin
there was last night. like there was this exchange on the military. >> you don't cut defense by $1 trillion. that's what we're talking about. this invites weakness. look, do we believe in peace through strength? we bet you t you bet we do. >> devastating cuts on our military. when paul ryan condemns defense cuts as a nefarious democratic idea that he is fighting vali t valiantvalian valiantly against he did not mention he voted in favor of those exact same defense cuts. also on the issue of medicare, i mean, maybe it's been said enough now that it doesn't need to be said every time, but once again at the debate paul ryan pounded his chest and criticized democrats for a change in medicare funding that he's denouncing on the campaign trail. last night as a $716 billion cut to medicare. well, that's a cut to medicare that he put in his loan paown pn budget. you can be before that thing or against that thing but cannot simultaneously be for that thing and against that thing not if we're supposed to take you seriously on policy which is supposedly the whole idea of you. which brings us to the issue o

hundreds of billions of dollars in cuts to the military triggering significant defense job losses. now, there is a battle brewing over layoff notices that could go out right before the election. chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel. >> the law says mass layoffs are coming, notices should go out 60 days ahead. obama administration that isn't necessary since many are hoping a deal will be struck to avoid the cuts. even so, a ceo i talked to he will be up front with his employees. >> it makes it challenging. people come to work. we've got some of the best people in the country working for us. they come every day, they want to design the best systems that our fighters need, but it's challenging. when they sit around kitchen table at night. honey, what is going to happen? it's tough because they don't know. >> reporter: obama administration is telling contractors if they get sued for not sending out layoff notices the government will pick up the tack. lockheed martin will hold off telling workers, but two kron man sent a letter saying quote, should you rely on that guidance and fa
